NXT to have Great American Bash themed episodes on July 1 and 8

The next two episodes of NXT which air on July 1 and July 8 will be titled The Great American Bash to play off Independence Day.

The pay-per-view name has not been used in WWE since 2012 when they did a SuperSmackdown using The Great American Bash name on July 3.

WWE resurrected the name in 2004 as a pay-per-view and held a yearly show for six years before stopping it in 2009. The Great American Bash was one of the staple NWA/WCW pay-per-views and was held yearly from 1985 to 2000 with the exception of 1993 and 1994.

The July 1 and 8 episodes of NXT will go head-to-head with AEW’s Fyter Fest.
